Ryton House, Ryton-on-Dunsmore - Rugby

Small Regency landscape surrounding the shell of a grade II listed Regency villa. Late C20 extensions to the villa extend over the gardens. Longstanding lack of regular maintenance has left the boundary belt, historic drive, shrubberies and lakes in poor condition. The setting is compromised by roads and residential development. Its future is uncertain.
